Mailbag: HBO’s Official Commenters

John Austin: MikeK: thanks a ton for the information on the City of CDA’s priorities for this budget year. It is a very impressive list (although CityLink expansion was only highly favored by two of you!). I encourage all HBO’ers to check it out. DFO, this is one of the real treats of this blog - the input we get from our public officials like Mike K and Al Hassell, Dan English, Gary Cuff, Tom Taggart and others. The public’s right to know is met head on by these folks, and that’s a good thing.

DFO: Um, there’s more public/elected officials on here than you think. Indeed, I’m humbled that this has become an online watering hole where The Powers That Be often respond to The Powers That Want To Be and others who are simply Curious. It can be bruising in here. But those, like those you mention above, have stuck it out and bring much to the discussion. Ditto to you, too, JohnA.
